Calculating percentages per course - Oracle Query

I have 2 problems here.
#1
Courses aren't grouping together.  My results have the same course listed several times with different count(*) per row.  Each identical course_name and course_number should be grouped into 1

#2
I need to get the percentage of ethnicity not equal to 04 per course.  So the total students.ethnicity not equal to 04 divided by the total instances of  students.student_number "for each" individual course.   The percentage I'm calculating in the query below only returns 0% or 100% which isn't correct.

Thanks so much!!!

SELECT 
CC.COURSE_NUMBER,
COURSES.COURSE_NAME,
count(*) as COURSE_ENROLLMENT,
ROUND(COUNT(CASE WHEN STUDENTS.ETHNICITY != '04' THEN 1 end)/ count(*) * 100) || '%' Minority

FROM         
STUDENTS
LEFT JOIN CC ON CC.STUDENTID = STUDENTS.ID
LEFT JOIN S_CT_STU_DEMOGRAPHICS_X ON STUDENTS.DCID = S_CT_STU_DEMOGRAPHICS_X.STUDENTSDCID
LEFT JOIN COURSES ON CC.COURSE_NUMBER = COURSES.COURSE_NUMBER

WHERE     
CC.TERMID IN ('2600','2601','2602')
AND STUDENTS.SCHOOLID IN ('61', '62') 
AND STUDENTS.ENROLL_STATUS = 0
AND COURSES.GRADESCALEID in (110,123)

GROUP BY
CC.COURSE_NUMBER,
STUDENTS.ETHNICITY,
COURSES.COURSE_NAME

ORDER BY CC.COURSE_NUMBER

It is probably because you are grouping on ETHNICITY.  You will end up with one course_number and course_name row for each ETHNICITY value.



If you want a copy/paste solution, please provide sample data and expected results.

Can you provide some sample data (dummy it up if it's proprietary) for that query and what you expect the percentages to be?

I just had to remove ethnicity from the group by clause and everything now works as expected.  Thanks so much!
